About the Show
Each week, Chef Ramsay will visit a new establishment with myriad problems – whether these restaurants are empty or dirty or have bad staff chemistry, the owners have nowhere else to turn. He will delve deep into the inner workings of each eatery, from unsanitary refrigerators to lazy and inexperienced staff, in order to diagnose the real problems. When Ramsay brings the issues to light for the owners and their staffs, some immediately will get on board to make the changes, while others will reject Ramsay's advice. Whether he suggests changes to the restaurant operations, offers updates to the menu or gives the establishment a makeover, Chef Ramsay will do all he can to save these often unsalvageable restaurants. But no matter what Ramsay does, it ultimately is up to the restaurant owners to take his advice and use it – or face closure.
Season Six kicks off with a special two-hour episode on Friday, April 11 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), when the show catches up with the most talked-about restaurant in the series' history: Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, AZ. Find out what has happened with Amy and Samy in the past year since the original episode aired, and the media firestorm ensued. Then, Chef Ramsay heads to Denver, CO, where he meets a restaurant owner who is truly stuck in the past. Pete claims his family owned-and-run restaurant makes the “Best Pizza in Denver,” based off a review from the 1980s. But when Ramsay holds a local taste test and a store-bought pizza is preferred over Pete's, it is clear the Denver community disagrees with that claim. The series continues to air back-to-back episodes through Friday, May 2 and returns for its one-hour season finale on Friday, May 16 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Also this season, Ramsay will re-visit La Galleria 33 in Boston, MA; the Olde Hitching Post in Hanson, MA; and Prohibition Gastropub in Everett, WA.
Ramsay has used his five-star culinary expertise and knowledge to help numerous restaurants on the brink of closure get back on their feet.
